Tech Data to offer Cynerio cybersecurity solutions for healthcare sector in Europe

Solutions protect connected medical and IoT devices in healthcare facilities to ensure patient safety, data confidentiality, and operational continuity

BARCELONA, Spain, September 21, 2021 – Tech Data, a TD SYNNEX (NYSE: SNX) company, today announced a European agreement with Cynerio, the leading provider of Healthcare Internet of Things (IoT) cybersecurity solutions. Cynerio’s IoT Cybersecurity Platform enables healthcare organisations to leverage clinically contextualised, real-time insights to identify and manage risk, optimise device functionality, and ensure patient safety and smooth operations.

Research shows that there has been a significant increase in ransomware attacks on healthcare providers in the last 12 months. Unsecured connected medical and IoT devices increase the cyberattack surface and, in the healthcare sector, pose a major risk to patient safety and the operational continuity of hospitals. The Cynerio platform gives customers a comprehensive insight into their device activity and correlations between device telemetry, clinical workflow, and external threat feeds.

“The rapidly accelerating digitalisation and connectivity in our public services brings the potential for huge benefits, but it also brings risk with increased opportunities for cyberattacks and data breaches.” said Craig Smith, vice president, Analytics & IoT, Europe, Tech Data. “Cynerio’s solutions help hospitals to keep their connected medical and IoT devices secure, enabling them to focus on patient care and well-being. It’s a compelling mission and we are looking forward to extending their reach among our community of partners in the region.”

“Ensuring healthcare organizations are secure is critical in today’s cyber climate. Constant barrages of cyberattacks have disrupted operations across hundreds of global medical facilities and have put patient wellbeing at significant risk,” said Joel Silberman, vice president, business development at Cynerio. “As Cynerio expands and accelerates across the European market, our partnership with Tech Data will enable us to accomplish our mission to help healthcare organizations across Europe combat cyber threats and achieve safe and lasting cybersecurity with a one-stop-shop platform that hospitals can use to maintain full operational continuity and continue delivering quality patient care.”

Cynerio was named a leader in Connected Medical Device Security by Forrester Research and a Cool Vendor in the 2020 Cyber-Physical Systems Security Report by Gartner.
